saw the pictures chris christie and president obama toured the storm-ravaged coast of new jersey yesterday. christie knows who was there to help when new jersey needed it. so now the big question is christie going to stay with the man he had previously endorsed or will he throw his substantial weight behind president obama? don't hold your breath. okay. we'll get into that and a whole lot more here on the "full court press." first, here she is with a current news update today lisa ferguson out in los angeles. good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. campaign schedules are getting back on track today as romney heads to virginia and president obama has a very busy day ahead of him. first, he starts off the day in green bay, wisconsin for a rescheduled event that he had to cancel tuesday to deal with hurricane sandy. then he is off to nevada, colorado and ohio. yesterday, obama toured the aftermath of hurricane sandy in new jersey along with governor chris christie who had nothing but kind words for t
, substance right, optics right, and has gotten boost that he's gotten from governor christie, which has been huge, i think, not game changer, but to whatever extent you could weigh this in out -- who knows what the effect is on tangible votes -- but in terms of what's happened over the week a good week for president obama, and a problematic week for governor romney. >> a story in politico, obama's reaction to a disaster coupled with a calculation to stop campaigning to supervise the relief effort from the oval office provided him with one thing he's needed with the first debate, opportunity to look presidential. presidential is what obama needed from sandy because a presidential image is what obama lost in his first debate with mitt romney. >> i think the debate made him look smaller and these events have made him look bigger. he was acting too presidential, like he didn't need to engage in that debate. it's not whether you're presidential or not. it's whether the stage is bigger in this situation, and it is. you are, as president, having to deal with real-life problems. he's taking executiv
is heading to new jersey. he'll join governor chris christie to see the devastation on the ground himself. meanwhile, governor romney, he's back on the trail in florida. there's still just six days until the election. what does that tell us about where the campaign stakes are really in play this morning. good morning from washington. it's wednesday, october 31st, 2012. happy halloween. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's get right to may first reads of the morning. we're still a long way from recovery. today after hurricane sandy's devastation we're seeing the very first signs of a return to what may be some normalcy as millions attempt to put the pieces back together. this hour new york city mayor michael bloomberg will ring the opening bell at the new york stock exchange which plans to be fully operational despite blackouts and flooding in lower manhattan. two of the area's major airports, jfk and newark in new jersey have opened with some limited service this morning. but new york's laguardia airport remains closed after major flooding. overall, nearly 19,000 flights can
will inspect the disaster scene along with governor chris christie, a top romney supporter. dan lothian is live in washington. good morning, dan. what is the president's message right now to storm victims? >> reporter: well, it really was two-fold. first of all, he wanted to pledge that the federal government would cut through red tape, cut through all the bureaucracy. he said there would be no excuses for inaction. and that federal agencies should really explore all options even leaning on the military if necessary to get the resources to where they need to get as quickly as possible. but secondly, what the president was also trying to reinforce yesterday was kind of uplifting the spirits of those hit by the storm. some of whom have lost everything saying that america is with you, america will help you get back on your feet. and he praised those who have already jumped in and taken action. >> during the darkness of the storm, i think we also saw what's brightest in america. i think all of us have honestly been shocked by the force of mother nature as we watch it on television. at the same time
. president obama and governor christy stood side by side how n the garden city have to go before things get back to normal. the president promising he will do his best to make sure that happens as soon as possible. >> i can promise you the federal government will work closely with the state and local officials and we will not quit until this is done. >> the president will try to avoid red tape and bureaucracy can helping states that were slammed by sandy and yesterday's yesterday was void of about tuesday's election which is something that depov gov christy appreciated . >> the president and i are big boys and business of politics and we are aware that the election is in six district attorneys and i asked him where he is campaign doing next . but most of the time we talked about the problems. >> governor christy is one of mitt romney's important surrogates and delivering the key note in the republican national convention two monthses ago. mitt romney is careful not to campaign too fely while people are in the east coast. as he made his closing argument. he made sure everyone in the event wa
important. this morning on fox and friends, chris christie, the republican governor, praising president obama. >> and at 2 a.m. i got a call from fema and signed a couple of declarations, and give credit to the president, on the phone with me, three times, and anything i've asked for and i thank the president publicly for that he's done as far as i'm concerned a great job for new jersey. charles: of course, chris christie is known as a straight shooter and argue that president obama has looked presidential during the storm so far, what do you think, david? >> well, all he has to do is do his job and it's not going to help or hurt him i think on the political front, it's a matter of just appearing that i've taken care of whatever the states have asked me to do. fema will have to do their responsibilities and we'll see how that plays out over the days. >> it plays for governor romney. both of these guys, you cannot ignore a fact a week from today is the election. charles: right. >> so, he has to do everything he can -- well, the president has to do everything he has to do. charles: how do
by this storm. >> yeah. i don't think we know all that's happened to the jersey shore yet. governor christie is going up in a helicopter and we're going to get our first pictures here this afternoon. we've had reports from point pleasant beach where the beach was essentially taken and spread through the town and then we've heard from atlantic city and seen where the boardwalk was ripped up and so forth. in the middle is long beach island and i haven't seen any reports from long beach island. what happened there is they were on the side of the storm where the water was pushed from the ocean in across the shoreline. farther south, down into maryland and delaware, much of the coast where they had some damage, they didn't have that hard push of water at high tide like good parts of the jersey shore did. so we're very, very fearful there and also on the south shore of long island. we also haven't seen that. so there is much more to learn about just those two areas let alone other areas spread around the northeast. >> and as you point out, the high winds, continuing high winds, and gusts are going
of their constituents. governor chris christie seemed to suggest he wasn't taking the election into consideration. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea. nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. >> right. >> i've got a job to do here in new jersey that's much bigger than presidential politics and i could care less about any of that stuff. the president was great last night. he said he would get it done. at 2:00 a.m. i got a call from fema to answer a couple of final questions and he signed the declaration this morning. i have to give the president great credit, he's been on the phone with me three times in the last 24 hours and anything that i've asked for he's gotten to me. i thank the president publicly for that. he's done as far as i'm concerned a great job for new jersey. >> new york city mayor michael bloomberg last night canceled tomorrow's new york city marathon after the critics said the resources were needed elsewhere, after i tweeted about it. i can't help but think that pushed him over the edg
christie said tonight that the jersey shore of his childhood is gone. what does it look like on the ground? >> well, we are in cape may new jersey. cape may is actually the southern most tip of the jersey shore. somehow this community dodged a bullet. folks here tell us that's because the winds actually shifted during high tide last night so the water was pushed south. but further north in communities like atlantic city, ocean city, point pleasant, asbury park is where the devastation is. those iconic board walks ripped up. the wood scattered across the street. the sea water and the sand inundating those downtown areas. governor christie said -- told us 2.5 million people in the state without power could be eight days or longer before that full power is fully restored. we know the president is due here tomorrow. he will take a look firsthand at the damage with governor chris christie and representatives of fema and of course, as we said earlier, it is going to take a long time to get this back to where i

] [applause] >> thank you. thank you. i hope this won't be like chris christie of the convention where he got a much bigger welcome than an ex. i came back to the responsible choice, and mitt romney and i'm hoping my introduction is not going to be longer than my speech. acus i'm going to try something all-new. i always worked very hard on my speeches and i write them all out, rearrange them and make sure they flow properly and make sure there are no jokes in them and then memorize them. i have no speech for this because i'm on a book tour but i wrote a book so i know how it goes. [laughter] and i thought i could just describe it to you and by the way i wish you had not reminded liberals that many of us don't think they have done so well in trying to anathematize because more than any book i've ever written by have never had a book so ignored by the mainstream media. one thing i have changed my mind about, i have always maintained ferociously that liberals cannot learn. they can't learn that if you cut back and you get more revenue and they can't learn it doesn't work so they coddled but appa
and massive flooding turning the casino town into a raging river. governor chris christie calling the damage simply unthinkable. even before it made landfall the storm did not spare states further south. residents of maryland, delaware, washington d.c., in northern virginia among the millions of people up the coast all the way to maine without power. the superstore slamming into new york city, flooding in some ways and tunnels with record -- a record surge of seawater that breached the city's downtown electrical system, including that supporting wall street. the new york stock exchange and the markets closed for a second straight day with much of the city still paralyzed at this moment. the eastern seaboard literally littered with homes watched from their foundations, streets filled to the rooftops with cars filled with water. in one case, a blazing inferno in queens, new york, a blaze that destroyed more than 80 homes in one community. fema officials say, sandy is not anywhere near being over either end as of right now this storm is moving inland, and dumping more than a foot of snow in wes
is scheduling to arrive in atlantic city to survey the damage alongside governor chris christie. this morning the associated press reports the storm killed at least 50 people. there are more than 8.2 million households still without power across 17 states. and many of the outages could last beyond election day. between damage to property and the economy, the total impact expected to reach a staggering $50 billion. the damage is perhaps nowhere worse than the coastline of new jersey where sandy came ashore laying waste to an amusement park and historic boardwalk at seaside heights. as for the airports, jfk, newark, they're expected to resume limited service this morning. the same cannot be said for laguardia. jetblue posted these photos of the runways submerged. more than 18,000 flights have already been canceled as a result of sandy. and police had to take to the air to save victims from rooftops in staten island after floodwaters surrounded their homes. they were loaded one by one into baskets before being hoisted to safety. now let's go to breezy point. a neighborhood of queens which looks

tell you what, you know, my mom, christie, used to have an expression. joey, if there's something bad, something goodwill come. and i want to tell you what makes me so proud. in moments of crisis, democrats and republicans always came together. i've got to tell you, it was reassuring to be on those calls. i really mean this. it was reassuring. that's how it's supposed to work. we always work better in america when we work together and everyone's in on the deal. and i tell you -- >> that's one way to look at it. good morning. it's friday, november 2nd. welcome to "morning joe." it's been a long week. with us on set, msnbc and "time" magazine senior political analyst, mark halperin. national affairs editor for "new york" magazine and msnbc political analyst, john heilemann and pulitzer prize-winning historian, jon meacham. good to have you on the show this morning. we will talk politics soon. >> thank you, ma'am. >> actually, the candidates are jumping back into the fray. full campaign mode again. and we have an endorsement by mayor michael bloomberg to talk about. >> is that what that

[applause] >> well, i would like to think it's because conservatives got tired of having their cars keyed insides ripped down and decided to retaliate by key liberal cars and within their signs down, but i suspect that is not reinserted. i think probably baseless support for obama, so they may not be willing to say it. who would put an obama sign on this lawn. [l
with governor christie. let's see how the polls unfold in the next day or two. that's the critical moment when the last minute undecideds and there are still some out there will be making up their minds. >> all right, richard wolffe, david k. johnson, great to have you with us, thanks for joining us. >>> coming up, the state of the race with just four days to go. what the real numbers tell us, >>> coming up, a look at the state of the presidential race. we'll look at the latest numbers and we'll visit with bob shrum. nobody knows more than he does. at least that's what i say. then, more problems for ohio voters. hurricane sandy leaves thousands without power. and over 6,000 voters across the state purged from the rolls. how serious is this? we'll have the details. and paul ryan hasn't helped mitt romney a bit in wisconsin. now the congressman may have trouble hanging on to his own house seat. john nichols will join me with that. we'll be right back. >>> thanks for staying with us tonight. four days out, and the state of the race favors president obama. seriously. now if you look at it, it is n
of images to rival the president touring the disaster zone with chris christie today, romney introduced by the popular former governor jeb bush and marco rubio and resumed the rally rhetoric. >> i believe this is the year for us to take a different course. i will bring real change and real reform. >> in florida, the latest quinnipiac poll gives the president a one-point neng the margin of error. the real clear politics average of recent polls have romney up over a point. in virginia, quinnipiac has the president up two and in a virtual tie. but real clear politics average there shows romney up half a point. in ohio, the challenge remains. quinnipiac shows five-point lead. and the real clear politics average has obama up 2.3 points. romney trying to expand the playing field to include pennsylvania, michigan, where thage in recent polls has chunk for obama. team obama scoffs. >> i will shave off my mustache of 40 years if we lose any of the three states. >> in pennsylvania, romney pulled to a virtual tie. the president has edge in margin of error according to a flank and marshall poll. in
is getting good marks and governor chris christie, keeps bragging what a great job doing that. it can't hurt the president with that happening. maybe he gains a point on approval but it's way to early to know. in key places like ohio, i'm not sure it's going to have an effect. >> greta: and in terms of support to the state, those people are hurting and that is his job. >> he has his race of his own a year from now. new jersey happens in the odd year. corey booker the mayor of new york. >> now that he is chummy with the governor? >> i think politics -- i mean everything is political. i think you have a right, chris christie is doing what is the right for the state of new jersey. so is the president. but in the background of all that there are some ramifications. i'm not sure conservatives in this race are very happy with him right now. they may not forget it in the general election in new jersey. a year from now, there is going to be political ramifications. i'm not sure he is worried about that. >> is it possible for either candidate, president obama or governor romney to win right now witho
conservatives. i don't think, in general, they are invited on hardball, except for one, ron christie, i don't know if you noticed this, he's the only one, i think chris matthews is so stupid he doesn't realize that ron christie is running circles around him. [laughter] it's the most fun thing to watch because other than that it's todd harris who couldn't argue with my cup ofized -- cup of iced tea. he'd lose the debate. [laughter] >> one thing i noticed in the area, this election, that is very different is in all past elections every other car in the area would have a kerry, gore, or obama bumper sticker. every five houses with a lawn sign with the democratic candidate. i could drive all day, and i'll just see a few bumper stickers that say obama. there's no houses in my west l.a. neighborhood with an obama lawn sign. what does this mean? [applause] >> well -- [applause] well, i'd like to think it's because conservatives got tired of having their cars keyed and signs ripped down and decided to retaliate keying liberal cars and that they ripped their signs down, but i suspect that's not the
'm happy to be able to stand here and complain about it. >> reporter: governor christie insists this is more of a power than supply issue. which he said will ease once power has restored. he has pressed utility company executives to speed up after they said it would be eight to ten days before power is restored. jim rosenfield, news4. >> eight to ten days they're going to be waiting, jim? do they have a plan to try to make that work out better? >> reporter: governor christie didn't like that at all. so he got these utility company executives together with fema and said, give us a list, what do you need. so they gave them a list and compiled numbers of utility workers they needed from other states. 1,500 will be coming from virginia. thousands in all. so many, they'll be housed at fort monmouth in the next 24 to 48 hours to speed up that process. >> eight to ten days, it also takes it past election day. what about voting? >> reporter: they've got a plan for that, too, doreen. the department of defense will have trucks outside polling places around new jersey where there is no pow
recommended for residents in flood-prone areas. chris christie said don't try to be a hero tomorrow. if you haven't gotten out, you need to get out within the next five to six hours. they're not messing around. >> exactly. a lot of people are heeding the warnings we've talked to today. they are getting out of these mandatory evacuated areas. you know what? they believe this could be the real deal, an appetizer, a taste of it today at least in the seabright area, a little north of where we are today, it was high tide earlier this morning and they saw one of their rivers come up over its banks and they saw the flooding potential that could happen there, and that's before the main course happens tomorrow when hurricane sandy is expected to come ashore when there's expected to be that storm surge of 4 to 8 feet of a flood coming over right around where we're standing, below where we're standing. we are seeing a lot of people heed the warnings. we also saw a lot of people boarding up their businesses, especially in seabright, putting up sandbags. i spoke with one store owner who has only been in
benefits if he's in close touch with chris christie. chris christie needs to be in touch with the president. they can try to muddle it, but it's a minor risk. it's less of a risk that what can happen on the democratic side, and you risk looking arrogant like you're already president. will that move any votes? i don't know. you went to the news cycle to freeze in the rest of the country and be about the hurricane as you continue campaigning. >> we've also seen both sides suspend fund-raising. they say they will not send pitching to d.c., to virginia, to pennsylvania, north carolina, new jersey, although i do notice that new york is not on that list. a little bit interesting, david. >> that is a big center for the president. both campaigns, of course, and wall street. these campaigns have a lot of money already. this is a chance to send messages to show their concern. it is, i'm sure, genuine, but it's a chance to reach voters and say donate to the red cross. i think obama campaign's said to the folks in these states. this is our chance to do that. they probably have enough money to deal with
stop to focus on relief efforts. how are the campaigns changing sandy. christie, a democratic strategist and cathy republican strat yist and author of 52 reasons not to vote for obama. christie, starting with you, it is obvious that early voting favors democrats in a big way and today the governor cancelled early voting and don't be surprised if it happens again tomorrow. >> it is not helpful to our side. but the ramification. storm impact will not only be felt today or this week but through election day as well we don't know all of the chaos that will ensue. it will affect both people who can't get to the polls polling places and voters that don't have power. we don't know who is really going to be hurt by it. >> steve: no matter means no tv ads and for poem who vote both campaigns are trying to get their message out in the week or so. no one will so that? >> in theory that hurts president obama's opportunities but where he has an opportunity to look presidential and there is it a natural disaster. and difficult for romny to grab air time. newspaper and radios and they will g
in atlantic city to survey the damage alongside governor chris christie. the governor who yesterday praised the president's handling of the disaster said he will ask for the army core of engineer's help in rebuilding the shore line, a huge project. nbc's danielle lee is in toms river, new jersey, just north of atlantic city. danielle, what are you seeing there? >> reporter: good morning. well, where i'm standing is along the road that you have to take to get from toms river, new jersey, to the jersey shore where you're talking about all that devastation. it's still closed today and right where i'm standing just yesterday was completely submerged in water. now that the floods have subsided, the damage is almost hard to describe. look behind me, a boat that floated in the middle of the road. and if you look over here, this is a patio from somebody's home that was washed into this parking lot. it does not belong here. and all along the patio are just bits and pieces of people's lives, decorations, things that were just ripped apart, stripped from them. it's not surprising when you consider all
in ohio, the president in new jersey with the governor of new jersey, chris christie, touring parts of that state. and here in brigantine, north of atlantic city, he spoke to firefighters and other people as well. this is about 20 minutes. >> good afternoon, everybody. i want to thank the members are here and i want to thank the president. we spent a significant afternoon to get there surveying the damage up and down a coastline. we were able to show the president that personally. we had an opportunity to discuss it. and over to the shelter and meet with folks and have them see the president and his concern all of us have for making sure that things get back to normal as quickly as possible. we have a lot of challenges. things we need to do to make sure we get power restored as quickly as possible, that people have clean water, hospitals are taking care of things they need to when we get kids back to school. i discussed all those issues with the president and i am pleased to report he has sprung into action immediately to give us those things while we were in a car together. i want
for himself as the face of the tea party. christie vilsack she has been talking for 1.5 year about a local message for those 39 counties, versus national grandstanding. she is against a longtime incumbent, but he is not an incumbent in that district. he has at least 20 counties to introduce himself to. we've got incredibly interesting races underneath the president's race. host: we have a republican caller from georgia. host:-- caller: and watch the sunday news shows to try to get all of the santa the issues. i want to know about the impact on voters that the white house cover-up of the libya murders and the tax is having. guest: to you and all of our friends and people viewing from the east coast, i hope that all of you are safe. the story that -- very complicated set of circumstances in libya and that part of the world, i believe it does not lend itself to easy politicizing. i am a state party chair and have absolutely no information other than what you have. what i see, i understand that this is being viewed through different prisons. what i have observed there is an incredibly complica
of incumbency. that is precisely the way he has looked, with the help of his new best friend chris christie. i guess bill clinton will have to step aside. he was the president's new best friend. now it's chris christie. with that bipartisan blessing, the president looks good. for mitt romney, he was pushed off the stage. this storm was a kind of circuit breaker for about three days. momentum, at least according to the romney camp, had been building up for romney. you lose that. politics is not just about the national voter choice. there's a big dial-up emotions included in this. i think the air went out of the balloon to a certain degree for romney during those three days. does he have time to regen? of course. we are back in the campaign today and will be back at a fever pitch by monday night. look at where the candidates are going. that tells you where the race is really close. they are trying to get that extra point to win. you can do it if you finish up a campaign in a particular states, if the rally is good and everything clicks and you dominate the press in the final 12 hours to 15 hours
sandy we saw governor christy and president obama not just side by side but pracing each other for their common concern and shared focus and placing the needs of the people first and to ensure whatever needed to be done, would be done. for anybody who thought this natural disaster would be the kick in the pants to work together finally. something happened this afternoon that absolutely shatters that. a republican rally in the state of virginia featured governor mcdonnell. they were for senate candidate allen. he was a failure of a president whose reelection would be bad for virginia and bad for the united states. doesn't matter which side you look at if you take governor christy's view that president obama is the savior for new jersey or that he's an absolute failure. the fact is an act of god couldn't bring democrats and republicansing to in this country. that's why we need an independent in congress. >> congressman cicilline. >> thank you for hosting this debate. as this campaign comes to a close i want to thank the people of rhode island who shared their ideas with me in thi
